Bad language: why being bilingual makes swearing easier My dad had a liberal philosophy of childrearing, but he would always tell us off for swearing. As a result, I grew up feeling very uncomfortable using swearwords. Or, at least, so I thought – when I first moved to Scotland, I noticed that it was actually very easy to swear in English.

The lessons will hold immense appeal for young Pixar fans, but adults students stand to gain too. Children are naturally confident storytellers.
